tv The Papers BBC News September 5, 2019 10:40pm-11:01pm BST
lovely to have you both here. busy all week, isn't it? many of tomorrow's front pages are already in, with fall out and reaction to the resignation of borisjohnson‘s brother, jo johnson, resigning. the guardian calls the resignation ofjo johnson, "an extraordinary blow" which sent "shock waves through the conservative party". the i reports thatjojohnson is standing down as a minister and mp because he can't square "fa m ily loyalty a nd the national interest". that story also makes the front of tomorrow's metro. the paper says the prime minister begged his younger brother to stay on in a late—night phone call. whilst the financial times says the resignation ofjojohnson adds to the sense that the hard—line brexit stance is tearing apart the conservative party. the independent reports on the backlash the prime minister
has faced following the speech, with mrjohnson accussed of politicising the police. that picture there all over. the times says that his decision to speak out was wrong and inappropriate. the daily telegraph accuses labour of plotting to delay accuses labour of plotting to delay a general election until november saying three senior ministers don't wa nt to saying three senior ministers don't want to go to the polls until the brexit deadline has already been extended. borisjohnson said that he would rather be dead in a ditch then asked the eu for an extension. it was in that speech in yorkshire earlier today. and, first day at school. the daily telegraph has a picture of a smiling princess charlotte with her older brother prince george as shejoins her sibling at lower school. the duke of cambridge told reporters his daughter was "very excited".
and why not indeed. let's start off oui’ and why not indeed. let's start off our chat. the front of the guardian, "i quit" the headline there. do you wa nt to "i quit" the headline there. do you want to start a soft, sam? it is a lwa ys want to start a soft, sam? it is always the quite once you have got to watch. we don't hear a peep from joejohnson from to watch. we don't hear a peep from joe johnson from one to watch. we don't hear a peep from joejohnson from one month and next on the day of his brother's big speech, what he was hoping would be the start of his campaign, he then drops a huge bomb. quite a different prime minister. it's one that cuts through the bubble. everyone understands families. everyone understands families. everyone understands brothers. but for brothers default like this, it's blood brothers, joe johnson who have served under three prime ministers, seeing safer hands unlike his brother and to walk out, it shows how deep this schism is. it would just rip open a schism in the tory party that's come out in the last
week. do you think it was surprising he was in the cabin in the first place considering they had different sta nces place considering they had different stances on brexit? you have those family ties but really it was the brexit angle. they voted differently. the familial loyalty, brotherly love with — — differently. the familial loyalty, brotherly love with —— it the overcomes your differences, you want your brother to do his best and then your brother to do his best and then you do your best for him. and then you do your best for him. and then you come to a stage where he has seen his brother behaving at his worst getting rid of 20 people like ken clark, people from the conservative party thrown on the scrapheap after all these years of public service. it was too much for him and he walked. some of them -- people are putting the whole trust thing on him, and they asked if your brother doesn't trust you, why should people. it was question after question, three and a rowing that was the opening line. do you think the has been done? i think the
problem is every family in this country has been divided by brexit and you will struggle to find a family completely on the same page on brexit. but the point you were making why did he actually agree to be in the government, i was surprised because borisjohnson made it very clear when he became prime minister that everybody in his government had to sign onto his strategy. jo johnson didn't government had to sign onto his strategy. jojohnson didn't know what strategy it was. and so we know he isa what strategy it was. and so we know he is a big remainer, so why did he ever agreed to go in the first place? it would've been betterfor all concerned if he had not entered the government. let's turn to the eye, same story. the pm and it defined brother wausau. he thinksjo johnson forest service. he did his best to ingest was a shambolic appearance in yorkshire in front of
these police officers. what you think of the shambolic element?” think of the shambolic element?” think he was shaken to his core by his brother's resignation or an event we don't know about, or his blood sugar levels were wrong, something went wrong,. boris johnson the gag meister who relies on this call response on telling a gag and then he tells a better gag. you can do that, but you can't do that on the camera church killian. he went from stalin from church of the charlie chaplin today. he looked a mess. we have seen him look state like like in berlin when he spoke to angela merkel and he was very much like a prime minister and came across well. but if your brother walks out on the government and says
he is quitting on the day you're making a major speech, you would not be human to not be rattled by that. it is obvious and quite a big deal. it is obvious and quite a big deal. it was the day from hell. he surrendered in the wards, packed and on filibustering the no deal, he is begging and peas to go for a second go at begging and peas to go for a second goata begging and peas to go for a second go at a general election. he will not get it. he sacked 21 mps and is getting blowback on that. and then his brother walks out and then finally in yorkshire china, a police cadet faints behind him as he's blustering on rambling on about brexit and criticising the police force, theresa may only had the stage phone front of her. but police office rs stage phone front of her. but police officers behind you... the queen has similar issues on the trip. you a lwa ys similar issues on the trip. you always get one of the soldiers falling over. he is seven the queen
to go to scotland. he is only saying one night because of the brexit crisis. let's turn to the metro and it is stilljojohnson, what did you make of the timing of him doing this? could he have chosen a different time to announce that he was stepping down? he done the slightly early labour. in the morning lobby when we were locked in with the prime minister's spokesman, it broke at 11 a:m., perfect in some ways. ran all day on the news agenda. they must have known earlier when they said that he had begged him to stay last night. the timing isa him to stay last night. the timing is a bit like last week you know like one step forward, ruth davidson, the scottish tory leader resigning point the carpet out from under him, he flies to ostensibly start a general election campaign today, his brother pulls the rug out from under him. it is calamity
cummings. it just seems from under him. it is calamity cummings. itjust seems like it's going off the rails the tory party. it is like a speeded up a version of a disaster to theresa may but everything isjust much quicker. talking about ministers leaving or being kicked out. what did you make of michael gove's appeal to somehow find the way to bring back in the full? there been one or two were quietly saying look this is not the way to go. this strategy is so risky and it is not paying off. can some mechanism be allowed to allow people to come back in? i'm not sure if everybody wants to, that is the problem. let's turn to the express and when you heard that "i'd rather be dead in a ditch". it was a
literally jaw—dropping be dead in a ditch". it was a literallyjaw—dropping moment in the office. very super metric of the position he is in. he is saying there is no way i'm asking for this delay. you can force me in law to ask for this delay i am not doing it. but it leaves and limited options. dead in a ditch is quite a stark way of putting it but the symbolism is that i will not do whatever you try to force me to stop with its almost talking about his own political more... it's talking about his own portico morality —— mortality as well. he rather die politically... and it doesn't look at the law, and he uses the police cadets is a portico stunt as pawns for politicians and mock most selenium way of showing of strength which does not work in the bridge context. —— a mock mussolini. which does not work in the bridge context. -- a mock mussolini. he was pushed as to whether he would resign
then. he was not going to go there to brussels and as for an extension. will that happen? he is only six week in! and people are already asking if he will resign. let's turn to the independent and as you are saying, the bill is being put as politicizing the police force and april —— and a stunt, where not formally in the campaign timing, it would never have been allowed. what would never have been allowed. what would you make of it —— what did you make of it? it's unusual to see the police and all gross. but all politicians of all persuasions co nsta ntly politicians of all persuasions constantly use the public sector and police service for their own twitter and. the number throughout my career —— for their own... the claim is that they —— he is dragging away police from doing vital work on the streets but how many hospital visits
and doctors pulled away from people who are sick and need treatment? is it appropriate to go to schools and stage some kind of visit to a school? this is parfor the course in politics stop with but the iconography of this. it's unusual stop with the spectacle looks like it could be donald trump. it's a donald trump like image that he's tried to project. it looks like the handmaids tale. just dystopian and dictatorial. and it's meant to project macho and "i am going to do this and i am the strongman". but it does not work. he looks like charlie chaplin in the great dictator norma mack when he opens his mouth. he is going up to... he is going to meet them there in scotland tomorrow. let's turn to the daily telegraph where it is all coming down to
numbers, timing, labour plotting to push back. any election to november. the reason why is quite a mystery as well, isn't it? they feelthat if they can control when the election, they can control when the election, they were insistent despite voting against and having it on the other day, and they will vote against it on monday. but what they plan to do is try to either put corbyn in number ten through the back door through a confidence motion or set the terms of the date of the election and put it back to the 31st of october deadline beyond that. so the prime minister will be forced to go back to brussels and ask for a delay. they are trying to avoid this no deal exit on halloween. they have stopped borisjohnson having the selection. they do seem to beginning the numbers together to put into
action. this is what gives them hope is that this alliance between the snp, labour, the lips, the greens, there is tensions between the labour party, corbyn's inner circle, he was mustering to go for the election. mcdonald saying hold back and let him go to brussels on the 17th by tober to discuss and ask for an extension which he has refused to do. —— the 17th of october. the snp in westminster, they know that the big ties on a second independence referendum is most lucky to come through labour. meanwhile pressure from the snp in and bro from their strategist than that they would love to frame this election as no—deal brexit versus independence and simple framing. they would go early so simple framing. they would go early so they are trying to resolve it. they're trained to resolve these tensions, come together and present a united front again on monday having done it. does all this
strategizing change the way to produce people think because in the paper it says labour is trailing by ten points, they have to hold a selection back, there is strong likelihood that they will not win is what is being said in the telegraph. they will be crunching numbers across the country but in constituencies in the midlands, the north of england where they think they can flip the labour vote —— the labour exe vote with the. will they bubbling at the wheel? is that the aspirations for brexit supporting labour voters was mac the same time these labour voters did not like jimmy corbyn very much. have a they plan to picture it... they want to show that all of this delay that labour is trying to move into, ever mac does not want this brexit to happen, that this isjust
mac does not want this brexit to happen, that this is just another domain brexit again. —— labour does not want brexit. if you want brexit... not want brexit. if you want brexit. .. if you trust corbyn and then get the blame and get the blame game going, that could work for johnson. the daily mail, wrecking holidays. no holding back. really quickly. these pilots are striking, we have strikes all summer with previous airlines. they want more money. they keep us safe in the skies, i guess they are worth it. they create massive prop —— profits. stop them if they want an average salary of £67,000 a year, i'm not sure many people would be sympathetic. ... we
sure many people would be sympathetic. we will pause there and come back at 1130. torcuil and sam will be back at half past eleven for another look at the papers. stay with us for the headlines at 11, right after the weather with darren bett. iam back i am back in four minutes' time but now it is the weather. hello, good evening. it looks like the weather is going to be settling down a bit for the weekend. it will still be on the chilly side mind you. today, temperatures were about 20 degrees across southern parts of england. with lighter winds, it probably felt warmer in the sunshine as well. we've seen some areas of cloud running across northern parts of the uk, bringing some showers earlier on too. those are going to be moving away but then we look to the northwest, we are going to find this next weather front moving down and bringing some wet weather into scotland and northern ireland. that rain will then work its way down to northern england and north wales later on in the night. the winds are picking up as well, especially around that area of rain.
and so as a result of the cloud and the rain, and a stronger wind, it should be a warmer night than it was last night. temperatures generally staying in double figures. tomorrow, that rain soon moves away from scotland and northern ireland, heads down into england and wales, arriving across southern parts of england for the afternoon. further north, we will see behind the rain bands some sunshine and some showers following. some of those showers could be quite heavy at times across scotland. for northern parts of the uk, temperatures will be similar to what we had today whereas further south because of that cloud and rain and the stronger winds, temperatures will be a bit lower. now there is a chance for a shower or two at old trafford tomorrow. i think the risk is greatest for the start of play, it should stay dry really after that. but it's still going to feel quite chilly. those temperatures only 16 degrees and we will probably have a stronger and gustier wind too. the wind direction probably changing from this west to south—westerly to something coming more from the north around an area of high pressure. we are going to draw
down cooler air down from the north for this weekend. but that high pressure tending to build in all the while should settle things down for most areas. and most places will be dry i think on saturday. some spells of sunshine after a chilly and a sunny start. there will be a few showers maybe across northern scotland, one or two developing central and eastern areas but they will be few and far between. still quite a keen wind blowing down those north sea coasts. that will make it feel quite chilly. the highest temperatures more towards the south west of england and south wales, 19 or 20 degrees. quite a cold start to sunday as the winds drop out, and the skies clear, it will start chilly on sunday. but there will be lots of sunshine away from the northwest. again, the cloud will build up but it should stay dry. more cloud across north—western areas. the rain band though holding off until after dark and again, temperatures of 16—18 celsius.
this is bbc news, i'm lukwesa burak. the headlines at 11:00pm: the prime minister's brotherjo johnson resigns from the government and will stand down as an mp because he is torn between family loyalty and national interest. boris johnson acknowledged that they had disagreed over the eu. he has been a fantastic minister for science and for the universities, andi science and for the universities, and i think that we certainly haven't seen eye to eye for a long time about the uk and the european union. you should be in brussels, negotiating... on a visit to yorkshire today, the prime minister repeated his call for an election and said he would rather be dead in a ditch
